We found Piebird while doing a random online search and decided to give it a try. It was only the slightest bit pricier than some of our other options but my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! The old farmhouse is beautiful. Antique furniture and a woodburning stove give an old-world feel, while the friendly and knowledgeable hosts make you feel extremely welcome and comfortable. Our breakfast was refreshingly simple but lovely and the hosts sent us away with a good deal of new Canadian music for us to enjoy on the car ride home. Make sure you say hello to the goats - especially Pepe. ... just maybe don't get too close to him without supervision.
Piebird also holds regular workshops - canning and the like. I haven't been able to attend any but I bet they'd be phenomenal.
